Marvel is expanding its robust roster of podcasts with Marvel’s Declassified, premiering exclusively on SiriusXM. The podcast, hosted by Lorraine Cink (Powers of a Girl, Marvel Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, Ultimate Marvel) and Evan Narcisse (Marvel’s Rise of the Black Panther) explores the history of the Marvel Comics universe, how other genres contributed to its evolution, as well as the social impact of some of Marvel’s major characters when it comes to representation.
Obviously, for our purposes, the latter part is particularly interesting, and I’m eager to hear Cink and Narcisse break down and analyze the important impact of characters like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan and others, as well as possibly ways where Marvel could do better.
Marvel’s Declassified joins Marvel’s existing podcasts, which include Marvel/Method, another SiriusXM exclusive, This Week in Marvel, Women of Marvel, Marvel’s Voices, and Marvel’s Pull List.
The first episode of Marvel’s Declassified is available now on SiriusXM. Check out additional details below!

Marvel’s Declassified to debut new episodes each week on SiriusXM, hosted by Lorraine Cink and Evan Narcisse
New York, NY – December 8, 2020 – Today, Marvel launched Marvel’s Declassified, its newest non-fiction narrative podcast series, exclusively on SiriusXM!

In its premiere episode, Marvel’s Declassified explores a time when comedy, romance, westerns, sci-fi, and horror defined Marvel’s comics, leading up to a historical shift that triggered the return of Super Heroes. Other episodes during the season will cover how New York City became the core of the Marvel Universe; the now-legendary impact of Marvel Knights, the beginnings of Marvel’s vast multiverse, war-era comics, and more. The series will also shed light on the societal impact of fandom, representation, and the evolution of some of Marvel’s most iconic characters like Captain America, Black Panther, the Hulk, and Captain Marvel, and what their roles meant—and can mean—for Marvel fans around the world.
